Composition # 12 -  MAES

Composition # 12
Linoleum cut, 1924, Museum Felix de Boeck retrospective (2007), page 205, edition unknown. 7 7/8 x 6 1/4 in. Signed and dated in the lower right with the printed signature, "KAREL MAES, 12/1924" and numbered in the lower left. This is a superb impression of this rare and exemplary work. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's light foxing in the upper left part of the sheet, slightly showing in the image.) Maes is one of the preeminent Belgian modernists and was closely associated with Jozef Peeters, Pierre-Louis Flouquet, Rene Magritte and Victor Servranckx, among others. This work is from his best period and his paintings of this era also focus on geometric abstraction. Most of his linoleum cuts were published in journals in the 1920s in black and white only. From 1922 onward, Maes began to design furniture, carpets, and posters.
